  • 6-8 medium firm peaches (about 800 grams) - peeled, stone removed, and cut into 8 slices each (see notes for a quick method for peeling peaches)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon arrowroot powder
  • 2-4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 2 cups granola (use GF for GF option)
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • yogurt (use vegan yogurt for vegan option) - for serving


  • Preheat oven to 375°F / 190°C. Grease an 8-inch (20-cm) pie tin with oil. 
  • In a large bowl, combine the arrow root powder and lemon juice together to form a slurry. Stir in the brown sugar, vanilla extract and ground ginger.
  • Add in the peaches and toss to coat. 
  • Pour the peaches into the pie tin. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the peaches have started to soften. The exact time will depend on how ripe your peaches are. 
  • In the meantime, in a medium bowl, combine the granola with the olive oil. 
  • When the peaches have started to soften, remove from the oven and give them a good stir. Top with the granola mixture, and lightly press the granola into the pie tin with the back of a spoon. 
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 350°F / 175°C. Return the pie tin to the middle rack of the oven and bake for another 10-15 minutes, until the peaches have softened to your preference. If the granola starts to brown too quickly, cover the pie tin with aluminium foil and continue baking. 
  • Serve warm or cold. With or without a yogurt of your choice. 


To quickly peel peaches: Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add in the peaches and cook for 1 minute. Remove peaches and immediately plunge in cold water. The peel should slide off easily.
